Last week I spent the majority of my free time doing homework and studying for my first math exam! Due to all the studying I felt pretty confident while taking it. I won't know the results until Tuesday though, so fingers crossed!
A lot of my homework is online so I'm often in front of my laptop. A couple weekends ago at the art fair in the Third Ward I picked up an awesome mouse pad that gives me a little smile every time I look at it.
Topics I'm learning about in my classes include Cell Cycles, Genetics, Histology, Leisure Importance, Leisure Philosophy, Various Algebraic Concepts, and Themes within Graphic Memoirs.
I'm currently trying to finish the memoir Fun Home by Alison Bechdel so I can begin my first analytical honors paper. The book is incredibly interesting!
Friday night my boyfriend Ryan came to Milwaukee to visit me. I really appreciate him taking the time to drive hours to see me :)
We decided to spend the evening at the Shorewood Mall. We started by going to Qdoba for dinner because Ryan has never been there before! It has all the Mexican food I could dream up and a Coke Freestyle machine which has my all time favorite soda: vanilla ginger ale. Yum!
After our quick meal we went to a grocery store I haven't been to in ages: Trader Joe's! I decided to get a mini pumpkin to help decorate my dorm room for fall. While we were looking at them, Ryan noticed that a cut out on one of the boxes looked like a :O face!
We spent a lot of time dancing around (quite literally) and checking out the interesting titles of Trader Joe's brand name items.
There were free samples of miniature pumpkin scones, and they were good enough that I decided to add them to my ever growing list of recipes to make!
Someday when I have a kitchen I'm going to ban myself from adding recipes on Pinterest until I've made at least half of them....it'll probably take a couple of years!
In the end we picked up some soy ice cream, Cliff Bars, Luna Bars, and a mini pumpkin for only $11!
We spent so much time exploring Trader Joe's that by the time we got out there was only 40 minutes until the mall closed!
We visited a lot of new stores. There was a wide variety of products and I'll have to make a return visit once I actually have some moolah! One of my favorite products we found was a bathroom guestbook. People are supposed to fill out a form inquiring details about their reason for being in the bathroom. I would totes buy it some day!
After we got back to the dorm we worked on setting up an N64 emulator on my computer and ate some French delicacies that Ryan baked (he's taking a French class so that's where the inspiration came from). They tasted like buttery pie crust (a.k.a. heaven in my opinion) and had sprinkles on top. There were two bags of them and we managed to eat them in the course of three days!!
It was a colorful start to the weekend!
